To understand if repeated cycles (2-4 rounds) of gonadotropin stimulation could affect intracellular localization/content of proteins controlling cell cycle progression in mouse fallopian tubes (FT) and ovaries. FT and ovaries of estrous mice (control) and of stimulated mice were analyzed to detect Oct-3/4, Sox-2, p53, beta-catenin, pAKT and cyclin D1 localization/content. Spindles and chromosome alignment were analyzed in ovulated oocytes. After round 4, FT and ovaries of control and stimulated groups showed no differences in Oct-3/4, Sox-2 and beta-catenin localization nor in Oct-3/4, Sox-2, p53, beta-catenin and pAKT contents. Cyclin D1 level increased significantly in FT of treated mice. Oocytes number decreased meanwhile frequency of abnormal meiotic spindles increased with treatments. Repetitive stimulations affected oocyte spindle morphology but did not induce changes in a set of proteins involved in cell cycle progression, usually altered in ovarian cancer. The significant increase of cyclin D1 in the FT requires further investigation.
